After disappearing from Evansville shelves for years, the Frito Lay company has apparently come to its senses and brought one of the best snacks ever created in my opinion back to the Evansville market.

Take a trip down Memory Lane with me, if you will. WAY back in March of 2013, I wrote a post for this website talking about how I had been unable to find my beloved BBQ Fritos for some time, and wondered where they gone. At the time, I discovered the only place they were available was 30-45 minutes south of here in Madisonville due to some nonsense that they didn't sell well in Evansville so Frito Lay decided to stop putting them here.

Fast forward to yesterday when our receptionist paged me to say that "Derrick" was here to see me. The thing is, I don't know anyone named Derrick. Now, it's not uncommon for a listener to stop by from time to time to ask a question about something they heard, so I went to the lobby to see what Derrick needed, and lo an behold, he had a bag of BBQ Fritos for me. Apparently he found them at Buy Low on Main Street in Evansville, somehow managed to remember that I was looking for them nearly TWO YEARS AGO, and grabbed a bag for me.

So thank you Derrick for thinking of me, and know that I will enjoy each and every chip in the bag until it's done (which could very well be in one setting because I have no self control).

Finally, if this news excites you as much as it excites me, head to the Main Street Buy Low and get ya' some! Derrick also mentioned they're available at Price-Less Foods on the west side. If they're all gone by the time you get there, chances are they're all in my desk.
